For 15 hours, today only, you can enjoy free flapjacks at participating IHOP restaurants. It's National Pancake Day and it benefits Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals including our local ward at Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare. Additionally, CMN Hospitals will have “Miracle Balloons” for sale for $1 and $5 each. They can be personalized and will be displayed at participating IHOP restaurants.

For the eighth consecutive year, IHOP restaurants nationwide are offering their guests today (February 5th) a free short stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day. Our area’s IHOP, at 535 French Road, New Hartford, participates in National Pancake Day each year and again is helping to raise funds for our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

If you could please donate what you would have paid for a short stack of pancakes, or more, you'll be helping IHOP continue to raise money for CMNH. They have raised nearly $10 million for CMN Hospitals and other charities. This year, 1,537 IHOP restaurants will participate with the goal of raising more than $3 million. Let's eat!
